Peer to Peer wiring with no hub

I have 2 PCs and want to know what order in the RJ-45 connector the wires need to be, in order for me to directly connect the computers without using a hub box.  
For example...  OrangeWhite   Orange  GreenWhite Blue   BlueWhite Green   BrownWhite Brown

Easier and quicker and less headaches if you just buy a 'cross/over" cable

RayK,
   I can't find one....I live in China


jhance,
   The diagram on that page in confusing and I can't get it to work.  Do you know what the R4, T4, T2, R3 and so on mean?  If so, could you please explain??  Also, which end of the connection is this for?  They can't be the same on both ends can they?

On the referenced page, a regular cable has BOTH ends like the first diagram.  A crossover cable has one end like the first diagram and the other end like the second diagram.  The R4, T4, doesn't matter, just use the color codes of the wires.

I figured it out on my own.  The diagram didn't help any, but since it is the correct answer I'll give you the points anyway.
